Documents concerning student association staff development seminars, staff meeting minutes and reports of studies conducted and prepared by committees of the National Intercollegiate Christian Council. Regional leadership seminars offer a chance for student secretaries to meet other student association staff, share ideas, learn methods and best practices for working with students and student associations and discuss the national and international social and economic issues important to the student associations. Seminar reports, pamphlets proceedings and notes summarize the discussions and activities and assess the content, accommodations and leadership. Minutes of joint national staff of the student YMCA and YWCA concern the sharing of information of the issues affecting the students, the status of work in student associations, the relationship between the YWCA and YMCA student associations and matters of administration of student associations. Reports include studies of religion on college campuses, freedom and order and the Christian's role in social issues and the relationship between the student YWCA and YMCA.
